Hello folks. Quick question. The Mavic Pro will calculate my distance from home and let me know when I should turn back, correct? Also, will it automatically return if I ignore the warning to return? I'm thinking about getting extended range antennas. (suggestions on that?).
Thanks for any input.

It will alert you when it needs to return home if you have the "Smart Return-to-Home" setting enabled in the following section of DJI GO:

Keep in mind that this feature will most likely not initiate RTH in time if the Mavic will be flying into strong winds on the way back to the home point. If you know it's too windy, either don't fly or make sure your Mavic is flying with the wind on the way home.

It will automatically start returning home after 10 seconds if you do not cancel it when the alert is displayed in DJI GO.
